UNO, from Gameloft, has been around for BlackBerry 10 for some time now, but it wasn't until recently that I got round to playing it for some reason. I'd been missing out as it's a real sweet game, either for when you're on your own, or have some buddies to play with. 

We initially went hands on with the game when it was released for the PlayBook and not much has changed since then - apart from we now have it at our fingertips whenever we fancy a game. As you would expect from Gameloft - UNO is pretty much perfect and almost puts all other mobile card games to shame. 

The colors and graphics are bright and crisp and it has some nice background music to enhance the overall experience. If you've played UNO before in real life then playing on your BlackBerry 10 smartphone will be as simple as peas. If like me - you are fairly new to the game, I can assure you it doesn't take long to get the hang of things. 

With single or multi-player games you can move your cards one of two ways. Either drag it onto the pile in the middle or alternatively a double tap will do the same. As you would expect with UNO all the regular rules apply - such as having to switch direction, pick up extra cards and change the color of the card in play. 

If you didn't manage to pick up UNO for free with the BlackBerry Christmas app giveaway you'll be pleased to hear that it only costs £0.75/$0.99 - money well worth spending if you ask me. 

As you will see in the video - I played the game on my BlackBerry Z30. It is available for all BlackBerry 10 devices so if you download it for the Q10/Q5 feel free to sound off in the comments as to how it compares. 

Features include: 

  • Intuitive controls: simply drag & drop cards using your finger on the screen and be the first to get rid of all your cards.
  • Customize your game with varied rules including 7-0 and Jump-In.
  • Enjoy unique multiplayer mode! Play with your friends.
  • Take on increasingly hard challenges in Tournament Mode

Yeah just like monopoly, I am almost positive you they did not implement the option to play against friends via wifi. That should have been stated in this

I have it on my Z30 and it's pretty fun until you called out "UNO" and someone before you hits you with "Draw Four Cards" I'm like fuuuuuuuuc I was so close lol

This has been out for a year now. Great game but better with local or online multi-player than with the CPU. And it's GameLoft if I'm not mistaken all platforms playing a GL game can interact with each other. Don't quote me on that.

The reason I have not purchased this game is because it is not clear how the multi-player function works and even with this review it is still not clear.
